So... I haven't run all week *blush* Last Sunday was my peak race; what I was training for. It is hard to get back into the groove and I justified my laziness in the name of "recovery." I have had a case of lethargy and couldn't think of getting out of bed before 6:30.
I did go to Stroller Strides twice for some great cross-training, so I am not a complete slacker this week. Now, I know that a lot of you probably think that Stroller Strides is a stroll through the park with our strollers. Not so. It is a very good workout mixing cardio, resistance training and abs. Monday we burned out our shoulders, biceps and triceps and Thursday we did some hill repeats, a ton of step-ups and squats. We always finish with killer ab workouts.
Speaking of Stroller Strides, tomorrow (yet another runless day) and Sunday I will be attending instructor training so that I can torture unsuspecting mothers in their effort to get back in shape. I figure that I will be getting plenty of workout, so going for a run at o' dark-thirty won't be necessary. I am excited for the training. It is the first step in my goal to have fitness be the industry of my second career. The training goes into details of exercise kinesiology, anatomy and physiology. There is a lot of focus on pre- and post-natal exercise for women. Hopefully, I will also learn things that will help me in my own fitness and running goals.
Now I just need to sign up for another race to get my butt back out on the road.
